I am curious because when I went and toured our elementary school, the students in the first grade are not learning that yet. My son, schooling through the Virtual Academy, learned how to do math like that 3 months ago.

Yes, my son learned that in 1st grade--maybe even the end of kindergarten, but I think it was 1st grade at the very least. I'd have to ask him to be sure.

No. They are still adding under 20.

My daughter is enrolled in a virtual academy.  We are doing that right now.  She finished kindergarten math at the beginning of December, and we are now working on first grade math.

No my sons second grade class is doing double digit adding (as well as multiplication, limited division and fractions), but my daughter in first grade is not.

When they were if first grade, it was basically addition, subtraction she had a really good teacher. He made it clear from day one, that he expects every student in his class to complete all three pages of homework each night. I loved him at homework, he is my kids favorite teacher. It all depends on the teacher, my kids are at a great school with really good teachers. We are lucky

Nope not yet.  We are still working on addition with doubles 9+9, 1+1, next is addition with neighbors 9+8, 8+7, etc.
